My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!"

Music - Bela Fleck

In an effort to show I do more than read...

Right now (while I read) I'm listening to Bela Fleck's Tales from the Acoustic Planet. It's great; he can do great bluegrass (see Acoustic Planet #2), but this is more jazz. Highlighted guests: Victor Wooten, Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas, Tony Rice (!), Bruce Hornsby, Branford Marsalis.

He helps me see great songs have to have great melodies. It's wonderful to hear so many masters of their instruments make their virtuosity subject to the song.
